Value Engineering & Value Analysis Training

 

Value Engineering is a powerful methodology for solving problems and reducing costs, without compromising the performance and quality requirements. The function analysis in value analysis and value engineering helps to analyze and improve existing products, components, systems, manufacturing/processes, and also in developing new designs.

value analysis and value engineering

Course Objective

After going through value engineering training courses participants will understand and learn about:

  • Understand the characteristics of Value Engineering along with related terminology: recognize the difference between the typical design process and the Value Engineering process.
  • Recognize how to consolidate Value Engineering proposals and value analysis concept.
  • Understand the techniques of value analysis and principles of Life Cycle Cost Analysis principles as applied to VE.
  • Understand FAST programming and selection of target areas of opportunity for creativity to improve project value.
  • Focus on function and thereby develop creative thinking towards project cost reduction.
  • Understand the difference between value analysis and value engineering.

Who Should Attend

  •   Project Managers
  •   Project Engineers
  •   Quality Surveyors
  •   Maintenance Engineer
  •   Project Consultants
  •   Architect Engineers

.

Benefits Of Attending

Value Engineering is a very powerful, highly structured, group thinking/consensus-building process for strategizing, conceptualizing, optimizing, and problem-solving.

Significantly improved performance can be achieved through the application of VE by increasing functionally and performance, while at the same time reducing total cost.

Value Analysis Concept can be applied to any project, process, procedure, system, or service.

Value Engineering & Value Analysis training workshop will offer the following benefits:

  • Reduction in the overall life cycle cost
  • Reduction in the total installed cost of the facilities
  • A structured approach to achieve a “fit-for-purpose” design
  • Finding a solution that provides essential functions at minimum life cycle cost
  • Combining ideas of the owner, designer, and a VE Team to improve functionality, quality, and cost-effectiveness
